Finished: Giotto-With-the-Flow Socks & Prelims 2, 3, & 4


Hello, all. Wow, do months just fly right by you before you know it when you're all stressy and preliming. I promised to show you some more finished socks long ago, and I've finally shown up to do it...


Finished: Giotto-With-the-Flow Socks
Pattern: These socks are a hybrid of of Anna Bell's Giotto Socks and Evelyn Clark's Go With the Flow Socks from IK's Favorite Socks. The idea for the hybrid was inspired by Whitney's clever machinations.
Fiber: Sundara Sock Yarn in Gray Green over Mint (one of my most favorite yarn colorways ever; that Sundara, she's a genius.)
Size: women's foot
Needles: size 1 Knit Picks circular needle
Date Started: a long time ago
Date Completed: January 2008
Modifications: No modifications from the two patterns. I knit the top section of the Giottos as written and the bottom section of the Go With the Flow pattern as written.


Love these socks. And such wonderful lounging-in-the-bed-socks.


Not that I've had much time for lounging in the bed any time recently...


Along with another pair (PAIR!) of socks, I've also finished my last three prelim written exams. If only I could say that the whole shebang was over and done. But the oral was canceled on account of a teensy bit of snow. It'll all be over soon, though. This Friday is the big day, finally. Then... maybe more time to blog? I'm hoping, anyway. I've missed you guys!

Up next: I rediscover what it's like to *not* spend twelve hours a day trying not to fail PhD preliminary exams. Also, my progress with Project Spectrum 3.0.

These socks are the prettiest I've seen in awhile! Maybe even pretty enough for me to get my sock mojo back... :-) Good luck with the rest of your exams!

Those are beautiful! I love the way the 2 patterns compliment eachother. I've read that the Giotto socks are a real pain...so this is a perfect compromise! Love 'em!

All of your socks are amazing, I am really inspired. I am just about to start my very first pair of socks, ever.
When I get stuck, which I will, I will come here for some motivation and inspiration.

That yarn is amazing. And it looks made for those socks (which, are lovely). Hope everything is done and dusted, now, and that you're happily enjoying some post-exam-whatever-you-want!
